Re: NEWS: AT&T Plans Slew of U-Verse Updates in 2013
Actually I liked working for ATT, I got to travel thru TX. I just call it like it is, most don't like to hear that.
I left to get my CCNA and I'm going back to them in mid 2013.
I know I sound negative but sometimes the truth hurts. All of my posts come from my personal experiences, and following up on those untrained or under trained techs.
Pair bonding to be specific is the hardest thing for most Uverse techs to accomplish. Not sure why, but everywhere I have been they avoid them like the plague. This is the key to all of these so called speed upgrades.
When I did these installs I never used the computer assigned pairs. I would go to the premise, put 2 tone generators on 2 pairs I could see making it back to the CO, and then at the crossbox I would call MLAC and change VRAD out pairs to the last 2 consecutive pairs available on the very last card. This method worked in every instance, it's just not by the book. It was the only way to get my jobs completed in the time constraints given.
You see most techs will just kick the job to IR and run, how can they possibly ever figure out how to do them.
